    It's just a little runner (7"x17"), made with some of the leftovers from Monty.
    Background fabric is the same O Canada text fabric (words to our National Anthem) as I used for Monty's background, last year. Once again, it's micro stippled, with the leaves left au naturel!

    Well done everyone. This is a never ending thread so keep those projects coming. Happy Canada Day to you, too, QuiltE. Fabulous runner. Wish I could say Something Patriotic would be done for tomorrow but, nope. Canada D'Eh is hanging proudly on the wall so it is the first thing seen as you walk in the front door. Since I used it at a car show last year I hadn't added hanging tabs so attached some on Friday. I think I will keep it up all July. Happy July 1 and July 4 everyone.

    W4Me ... looks like you did complete A Little Patriotism yourself, with your tab addition, to be able to hang Canda D'Eh! this year! Mine is pretty simple ... sometimes, it's nice to have something a little more subtle and to brighten a wee spot! Definitely leave your quilt up for the month ... or longer!

    Thanks ThimbleB!
    ... instead of it being used as a runner, it has become a wall hanging.
    Only problem ... I hung it vertically, and the words were used on the horizontal.
    Maybe I should now call it "Vertically Challenged"?

    Here is a picture of an 80" square patriotic quilt I just finished. The center of the quilt started with the printed Eagle & Prairie Star panel from the American Valor collection and I pieced the remaining 4 prairie stars and the stripes and bear paws around that. JulieDeGrave, a very talented LAQ, quilted the quilt. I'll probably be posting it later this week when I get a chance to download more pictures. You all should see the amazing work Julie did on the eagle, which doesn't show up here.

    BuzzinBumble....your quilt is breath taking.

    [QUOTE=peggymunday;5149581]Can it be projects that have been previously completed? This is a wallhanging that was requested by a friend for a new family member that hailed from Canada. A blending of American and Canadian. They were thrilled with the result. I tried to stay to scale on placements for each flag, and had to make patterns for the stars (they were actually painted and then outline stitched) and the maple leaf (drawn freehand on a folded paper, then unfolded to have a symmetrical result). Here's some pics...

    Nothing spectacular here. Just some simple Canadiana Mug Rugs!

    When I was setting up my machine to quilt Monty, these were some of the trial pieces that I did to get the settings right and then to practice FMQ. I used a cream thread for the cream print on the backing and then the top thread was matched to the area I was working on, so it took some fiddling to get the tension right! These little ones helped me get the thread on the proper sides ... and avoid pokies for the better part!

    Finally finished!

    Here is one of my patriotic projects. The four pink and green blocks on the left are currently being redone in red white and blue.

    HuntersGrammie ... Thanks! All are the same fabrics I used for Monty the Mountie, earlier in this thread, completed July 2012. The black print, I bought it the year before at Fabricland. I haven't been able to find the black again, though I did get the same print in blue with the flags this summer. The cream has the full lyrics for O Canada printed faintly in the background and was a part of a collection of Canadian themed fabrics. Sorry, I forget what company but am pretty sure it was a name brand. I bought it here locally, not a national store. I have seen it and several of the others in the collection, periodically since then.

    I like the fabric and O Canda lyrics on it. Really innovative idea.

    Thank you Links... What attracted me was the subtlety of it. It came in a light turquoise on cream as well. Perhaps you would join us, and start a patriotic project of your choice?

    Good Morning Links ... Being that you picked up on the Canada fabric, I'm guessing Brompton, Quebec but I do know there is a Brompton, England. This thread and the projects in it are for patriotism for any country!

    To "join" ... make something patriotic and then show us what you are doing. Some have shown their fabrics when they start, and pictures of their project as they work along. It's kind of like working on it together. Plus, the ooohs and aaaahs help to keep you on track to finish and not let it become an UFO!!!

    So put your thinking cap on, and go shopping in your stash .... and let us know what you are going to do!

    We'd love you to join us links123. Miserable weather outside makes perfect sewing time inside, as long as you still have power.

    Fabulous job dublb. Is that in honour of Texas perhaps? It looks great. Is it for you or are you giving it to someone special?
